桜月夜

白く霞んだ月を覗くたび
硝子に暈ける面差に飽くたびに
遠く遥かな憶い出が過る
淡く優しい景色が甦る

ゆらり揺れる 桜の花弁
ひらりひらり 舞い降り
心にひろがる水面に
落ちては翻える
二度とは戻れえぬ日々よ

数えきれない季節に流され
何れ程灯りを失っても消えない
仄かに浮かぶあの頃の記憶が
幽かな鈴の音色が聴こえる

ゆらり揺れる 桜の花弁
ひらりひらり 舞い降り
心にひろがる水面に
落ちては翻える
二度とは戻れえぬ日々よ

大きな背中を待ち侘びて泣いてた
小さな影法師には もう逢えない

春の薫り 野に咲く徒花
雪を解かす木漏れ陽よ
貴方を待ち侘びた時を
想えば切なくて

ゆらり揺れる 桜の花弁
ひらりひらり 舞い降り
心にひろがる水面に
落ちては翻える
二度とは戻れえぬ日々よ

Cherry Blossoms on a Moonlit Night

When I peek at the white-misted moon
When I tire of hazy features in the glass
Distant, far-off memories float by
I recall a fleeting, gentle scene

The slowly swaying sakura petals
Lightly, lightly flutter down
Onto my heart and the wide water's surface
Falling, they flip over
Those days I can never again return to

Washed away by the countless seasons
However much light I lose, it won't disappear
In memories of that time which faintly come to mind
I can hear a weak tone of bells

The slowly swaying sakura petals
Lightly, lightly flutter down
Onto my heart and the wide water's surface
Falling, they flip over
Those days I can never again return to

I waited impatiently behind your large back and cried
We won't meet anymore in a tiny silhouette

The aroma of spring, fruitless flowers blooming in fields
Sunlight through tree branches melts the snow
It's painful if I remember
The times I was waiting for you

The slowly swaying sakura petals
Lightly, lightly flutter down
Onto my heart and the wide water's surface
Falling, they flip over
Those days I can never again return to

Notes:
The title can be read in two ways, both of which are pronounced the same and both of which make sense. Sakura zukiyo is what I went with, but it could also be read as sakurazuki yo, which would mean "A Night of the Third Month,"  桜月 being one of the names for the third month in the lunar calendar. Isshi, ever the ambiguous one...
